Video of school bus attacked today in Gurugram by anti-Padmavati cowards. This is the aukat of groups like the Karni Sena: attackers of little kids. May the men responsible for this never be able to walk again. pic.twitter.com/4ZFKvJboKc— Shiv Aroor (@ShivAroor) January 24, 2018
This incident became a symbol of government apathy to maintenance of law and order. Shot by a passenger on the bus, the video captures just 13 seconds of the four-minute ordeal that students — the youngest was aged four — teachers and school staff went through as the bus drove past a mob that had just torched a Haryana Roadways bus. The attack on the school bus was among dozens of protests across at least six states Wednesday, a day before the release of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.
The Supreme Court had Tuesday cleared the decks for the film’s release for Thursday. We really hope this violence stop soon enough and no more people are hurt!
